If you don’t already know about Flying Car Milwaukee, make sure you check it out: http://flyingcarmke.com/. This is a great event with an impressive speaker lineup, including Apple's Steve Wozniak. Milwaukee Tech Engine will be represented by Jason Haedt "Connecting Smartphones to Embedded Devices". See description below:
Bluetooth 4.0 technology in today's smartphones enables an ultra-low-power wireless connection between the phone device and an embedded machine. Anaren's B-Smart BoosterPack (based on the Texas Instruments CC2541 Bluetooth Low Energy SoC) makes integrating Bluetooth low energy technology into an embedded device easy. In many instances you can go from concept to production in only 90 days. And all this can be done without becoming an RF or a Bluetooth stack expert. The B-Smart modules are pre-certified with regulatory agencies worldwide. The Emmoco Em-Builder software used in conjunction with the Anaren B-Smart modules provides a simple serial-port protocol that uses easy-to-use store and fetch APIs for the wireless communications. In this lab we explore the wireless interface and do a brief demo of the module in action.
